1. The only way to stop the #Iranians from threatening our force in #Syria is to slam the door at #Baghuz. But that's the border and taking a border crossing is a big deal. We are with the #SDF on the other side of the Euphrates but the SDF has to deal with the
2. Russians because Tяump betrayed them by surrendering to #Erdogan. @POTUS kept status quo with Turkey - still murdering #SDF. #Israel approaches political disintegration so #Putin & #Iran think it's good time use #Kremlin's caucus of @HouseGOP to help them take all of #Syria.
3. #ISIS is still very active on the west side of the #Euphrates next to the Iranians. We should get them all out but past and present policies have a price and ours is that we have to do this with US and/or other partner forces because of @SecBlinken's misguided #Turkey policy.
4. The door at #Baghuz has to close. So the #Sunni #Arab unit at #Tanf should be tasked to take #Baghuz. Once secured begin the big sweep. @CENTCOM @NSC_Spox
5. Status in Syria unclear. I think there have been three separate Iranian attacks & two separate US responses. Most-recent Iranian attack was on Green Village, 25 miles southeast of Deir EzZor. Reported one US services member injured but stable. #Syria #Iran @CENTCOM @NSC_Spox

1. Docket watching. Stored Comms Act appeal docket posts May oral argument. Stay was dissolved so it's likely soon moot. This was on a rocket for the first week then Govt supplemented record, then paused ten days and they flushed it. Could Govt have appealed to SCOTUS & won?
2. What was in that supplemental record? Could we have the orange menace working with the Kremlin to create violence and they picked it up in a FISA intercept? 10 days at SCOTUS is a blink of an eye. If I'm right, it had to be something terrible supplementing the record.
3. I also think the nuclear threats from Moscow are likely being coordinated with the GQP in Congress and their dear leader. Perhaps even the most staunch right-wing SCOTUS justices don't want to be nuked.

1. What if Alvin Bragg charges #45 for rapes he and Epstein committed related to minors? The crimes were alleged in the 1990s when the statute of limitations for sexual assault on a minor was five years. Now NY state has no statute of limitations.
2. The case that held that retroactive changes in the statute of limitations violated the Constitution's ex post facto clause was Stogner v. California, decided in 2003 by a sharply decided SCOTUS. Only one justice who heard that case is still on the court.
3. And because we now have a court that has ended stare decisis, Bragg would be ethically justified in testing the waters by charging him under the new statute of limitations. Put the record of the orange menace's multiple rapes of teens in the record for

1. I try to harmonize facts to make sense of what seems odd. Corcoran had to protect the privilege. It's not his call. Typically the lawyer is taken to the district judge and if the crime-fraud exception applies the attorney is ordered to testify. But if they appeal then it goes
2. to the court of appeals. What we just witnessed is an appeal that got flushed in record time that appears to have not even addressed the merits of the crime-fraud exception claim. But this case is apparently only focused on physical documentary evidence. I looked at court of
3. appeals dockets and there are several in recent months that are related to grand juries. I think it's possible that the courts have already ruled once on the application of the crime-fraud exception to the facts of this case and Corcoran still would not turn over the documents

1. I bet that this is the docket for the Corcoran grand jury testimony appeal of Judge Howell's crime-fraud exception ruling. Just filed today and associated with another appeal also just filed. The attorney appeal and the client appeal? Also, a new 2023 grand jury.
2. They had one for the search warrant that was a 2022 number. So why another more-recent grand jury? Could someone else be the target?
3. I'm watching this docket to see if the DC appeals court grants the stay. If it denies it, then it likely goes to SCOTUS.

1. Xi and Putin meet with the likely subject including Russia's imploding economy. Not shown in the official photo is Russia's Central Bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina who Putin forced to stay on after he drove the economy closer to default. Image
2. Tonight Putin will host Xi at dinner at the Kremlin's Palace of Facets likely to beg for weapons and cash. Image
3. Backdrop to Putin's Nazi-themed war of aggression against Ukraine, the Palace of Facets holds historical significance because the feudal Zemsky Sobor parliament was held there in 1654, resulting in the Treaty of Pereyaslav ceding Ukrainian sovereignty to the Tsarist empire.

1. Xi Jinping was interviewed by the Russian state controlled press the day before the travels to Moscow to meet with the indicted war criminal Vladimir Putin. The interview followed the Chinese Foreign Ministry release of a position paper: "China’s Position on the
2. Political Settlement of the Ukraine Crisis." Though the official Chinese position gives lip service to the concept of respecting territorial borders it does not call for Russia to withdraw unconditionally and repeats the past official position calling for a ceasefire followed
3. by dialogue. It's hard to say whether Xi will privately advance a position consistent the stated respect for territorial integrity that would require Russia to withdraw from Ukraine as the condition of a ceasefire. Xi is smart enough to know that Ukraine has no reason to
